Web Designer

This will be your favorite job.

ShortStack is a small and agile company that has focused on one successful SAAS product (online contesting) for the past 10 years. We cater to customers of various sizes, including nationally-recognized brands. Most of our customers are self-serve, but we also build custom campaigns.

Because we’re small, there is only one boss and no managers. This means there is no corporate ladder to climb (or fall from). We work hard. We have fun. Our employees love working here. Our office is located in downtown Reno, a block away from the Truckee River and within walking distance of bars and restaurants. Both the building and our office are dog-friendly. Remote work is allowed, but we also value in-person collaboration, so we currently ask our employees to come to the office at least three days a week.

As our only full-time web designer, you’ll have a number of responsibilities, but also lots of opportunities to express your creativity. We’ll train you to use our platform and then you’ll use that experience to build campaigns for our customers, work with our developers to suggest UI/UX improvements to our platform and oversee the design of our main website.

Software Engineer

Are you an experienced full stack web developer looking for a small team where you can make a big impact? We want you on our team! Familiarity with our technology stack is helpful (see below), but not required.

We’re used to remote work given the pandemic, but nothing quite beats in-person interaction (even if it is from 6 feet away with a mask on).

What to Expect Working at ShortStack

  • You’ll work on all areas of our online contesting platform, including architecting new features and DevOps. You will have the freedom to pursue your own ideas for our product.
  • All developers pitch in with support issues, but you will have almost no direct contact with customers (we have a great customer service team that handles customer contacts).
  • You might be asked to sit in on phone calls or meetings with potential clients to help close a deal, but this is rare and won’t happen until you know our platform well.
